Title: Murder at Minter's Cursed Doll Shop


If evil comes knocking don't sell it a death curse.

Nicole Scott possesses a unique gift. She can see and hear ghosts. When a body turns up at her Aunt Patsy's doll shop, Nicole recognizes the victim. The woman is - or was a client of Nicole's estate liquidating company.

Early evidence points to a death curse spoken by her aunt the curse wielder. Nicole disagrees, but talking to the deceased is out of the question. Murder victims can’t remember their last moments.

Greg Handler doesn't believe in witches, or the paranormal. The detective comes from out of town to solve the case. He's at a disadvantage and doesn't know it. Which makes Nicole and Greg either the perfect partners or a complete disaster waiting to happen.

A black magic curse, or plain old fashioned murder, the mystery of this whodunit begins Nicole’s unofficial career as an amateur sleuth.

Book 1 in the Curious in Eubanks Paranormal Cozy Mysteries series! Set in a small town of curiously quirky paranormal residents this full length novel can be read as a standalone mystery.

No cliffhangers. No swearing. No graphic scenes.


--Abigail's Targeted Tip:


It’s not enough to have intense action, intrigue, etc. Your word choices must also convey the same level of intensity.
